Blue Ribbon Commission Update
The Blue Ribbon Commission on Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou Public Safety continues its efforts toward reaching its goal of setting safety benchmarks for the Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou communities.
While the BRC efforts are ongoing and more work is needed before the Commission finalizes its recommendations, the panel of experts have reached consensus on some fundamental benchmarks.
The commissioners agreed that the higher priority safety issues for the public are related to methane and hydrogen sulfide, while stability issues are more long-term in nature. More specifically, the basic framework for recommendations related to issues associated with methane and hydrogen sulfide are as follows:
-In order to lift the evacuation order, gas pressure in the MRAA and overlying aquitard has to be maintained at or below hydrostatic pressure.
-Mitigation (such as barrier creation, sub-slab depressurization, ventilation) at each dwelling that is slab-on-grade or has enclosed…

Gulf Restoration Network – Landmark Agreement to Protect Gulf of Mexico Whales, Dolphins from Industry’s High-Intensity Airgun Surveys
Environmental Coalition Reaches Legal Settlement with Feds and Oil and Gas Industry
WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 21, 2013) – Yesterday a coalition of conservation groups (the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Gulf Restoration Network, the Center for Biological Diversity, and the Sierra Club) announced a major settlement agreement with the Department of the Interior and oil and gas industry representatives, to protect whales and dolphins in the Gulf of Mexico from high-intensity airgun surveys. The settlement requires new safeguards, including putting biologically important areas off-limits, expanding protections to additional at-risk species, and requiring the use of listening detection devices to better ensure surveys do not injure endangered sperm whales. The agreement was filed in the case of NRDC v. Jewell, in U.S. District Court…

What happened at midnight last night???
LA17 showed it too, and that is near Hwy 70.
We have this from K.S. who lives there –
“That radical shake at midnight on the 27th, I hit the sack @ 11:50 that night. Right at midnight, I felt my camper “bounce”. No traffic passing. I actually got up & listened. Then I opened the door, looked out, & listened until a pickup passed. Then I locked up & crashed out. I’m in Pierre Part almost to Duffy’s Place, roughly 10 miles west of our place down La 70. I felt that surface bounce here. FYI.”
LATER – the helicorders may show this geo-phone hole work they are doing as reported on p.4 of the weekly SONRIS report.

The Advocate – Deadline for sinkhole buyout talks extended to July 31
BAYOU CORNE — Nearly half of the eligible residents and families in an evacuation area affected by a sinkhole induced by a Texas Brine Co. salt dome failure last summer have agreed to company buyout offers, while the rest have more than a month to complete negotiations.
Texas Brine faced a 5:30 p.m. court-imposed deadline Monday to reach out-of-court settlements with residents who had not filed suit against the company, but U.S. District Judge Jay C. Zainey extended that deadline on Tuesday until July 31, Texas Brine spokesman Sonny Cranch said. . . .
